Source:  social-engineering.org

The BackTrack penetration testing framework comes with an inbuilt social engineering toolkit.  Using this toolkit, social engineering attacks can be automated. A wide range of attacks can be effected, including encoding of scripts, binding Trojans to legitimate files, creating fake Web pages, or harvesting credentials. It has the ability to use Metasploit-based payloads in the attack, making the framework all the more lethal with the professional exploits from the Metasploit framework, one of the indispensible IT security audit tools.
